Monday will be the last day to donate to the Toy Drive! Apollo Student Council & Apollo PTA are collecting new toys and clothing items from Monday, November 18 – Monday, December 2 for the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank’s “Holiday Gift Barn.” Donation boxes are outside the office. The “Holiday Gift Barn” serves over 1,800 students in the Issaquah School District each year. Apollo collected over 400 toys last year! The grade that donates the most will earn a popsicle party!
Lunch for the Break will be available at Valley Church (SR 900), Our Savior Lutheran Church (downtown Issaquah), and Faith Church (Issaquah Plateau) on Thursday, December 19th. If you are interested in accessing food over the winter break for your student, please register using this link: https://issaquahfoodandclothingbank.wufoo.com/forms/z1exegrk18ythvv/
Each year we offer to parents/guardians of fifth grade students a district presentation of the Family Life and Sexual Health (F.L.A.S.H.) curriculum prior to teaching the unit.
The presentation includes information about:
· Laws and district procedures
· How curriculum is presented in our classrooms
· Options for exempting students
The upcoming dates for these presentations are:
Wednesday, December 11, 6:00 PM
Saturday, December 14, 9:00 AM
· All presentations are held at the Issaquah Administration Center:
5150 220th Ave. SE
Issaquah, WA 98029
· Please know that the presentation begins on time and lasts approximately 1.5 hours.
It is only mandatory to attend a presentation if a parent/guardian wants to exempt their student from the HIV/AIDS lessons.
Additional information about F.L.A.S.H. is available on our ISD website or by contacting Kris Coleman (425-837-7123)
The Apollo PTA would like to wish everyone a happy and peaceful Thanksgiving!
